How to Buy UNI on Giottus (step-by-step guide)
UNISWAP: What is it?
Uniswap, a decentralized exchange (DEX) for exchanging cryptocurrencies based on the Ethereum blockchain, is powered by the cryptocurrency token UNI.
With more than 94 million trades completed since Hayden Adams, the founder of Uniswap introduced the V1 protocol — the first version of Uniswap — in November 2018, Uniswap has quickly gained much traction. On Uniswap, more than $70 billion (£52 billion) in cryptocurrencies are swapped on a monthly basis. Uniswap uses AMM (Automated Market Maker) to match trades quickly and allow liquidity to the traders at all times. Uniswap is also the first DEX, and many DEXs that have followed suit have been inspired by Uniswap itself, including SushiSwap, PanCakeSwap, ShibaSwap, etc.

The protocol allows for a more decentralized trading experience than Coinbase and Binance and rewards users for creating liquidity pools to support these exchanges on the Uniswap platform. Unfortunately, a large number of liquidity providers are losing money. A study by Bancor found that the volatility of cryptocurrency prices costs 50% of liquidity providers’ money.
Where Can I Purchase UNI Tokens?
